In the previous blog post, we showed you how to use Menu with Cassiopeia in Joomla 4. In the blog, we covered moving the entire Horizontal Menu from the header position to the footer position. If you want to have a website with a footer main menu like that, that’s great. However, it will be inconvenient if visitors have to scroll to the bottom of the page to access other pages in the menu. To solve this problem, you just need to keep the main menu position in the header. Also, build an extra menu at the bottom of the page. So, visitors can access other pages of the website or external websites through menus in both header and footer positions. Now, let’s see how to build a Horizontal Footer Menu with Cassiopeia in Joomla 4.

In order to easily build a menu in the footer, you need to download the Sample Data in the Home Dashboard first. After downloading, your site will use the sample data automatically.

Now, let’s open Menus -> Bottom Menu. You will see that the Login section is in Guest status, which means visitors can see it on the bottom menu. If you want to display more sections on the bottom menu, let’s go to the New button to create a new one.
